    I used to love to hunt morels, now with my limited time off work I chose to fish instead..I did find this nice mess a few years ago.

    I've never even heard of doing this before I came to this board. Whats the deal with hunting morels anyways? Where are good spots to find them? And how do you tell if they are morels or not? I don't want to go and pick up any hallucinogenic mushrooms thinking they are morels lol.

    A little early here in central Ohio yet. When you do go out and get some, remember O'le Uncle Scifi and pick one for him - it was one of his favorite pastimes. Maybe he will lead you to some more! :)

    Thats a darn fine mess, Flathunter!
    Thats one thing I am going to be sure and do at Salt fork during slack fishing hours at the gathering. Some real nice looking spots on the back side of the lake! I got there to late last year for them, but that weekend should be prime time.;)

    Little early yet for Morels, but I bet this warm weather has the Oyster mushrooms starting to go. If we don't get some serious rain we may not have a morel season:sad:

    hallucinogenic mushrooms are the best.that way you can take a trip and never leave the farm.:) yeah it early here in ky for them to but it want be long. the way you can tell what they are is they kind of look like a Christmas tree sponge or just check out jacks picture.he had a good day on that one.try it sometime it a good way to get out and wonder around the woods and find all kinds of stuff.:)

    Look to the second week of April as an average for central Missouri & Kansas.

    I wasn't looking for them or anything, but saw one growing on the side of the trail. It was actually the first one I've ever seen outside of a book :)
